Charlie's Bird

living the dream with Charlie and Thandi and chirping all the way back to the nest.


…so, I booked some accommodation, that said I wouldn’t be billed immediately, and of course I was charged, in about 30 seconds, but anyway. At least it is fully refundable if we don’t get our visas in time. I have filled in all the ridiculous forms. (You don’t need to have travel plans, but what is the address you will be staying at? Who will you be meeting? I don’t know, I don’t know anyone in New York!) We took our photos for the application and then had a hiccup on the site booking appointments – it said it would send me an email to verify the account – and it never came, and somehow I managed to navigate away from that page and now when I try again it tells me that my email has been used. Admin and gremlins are sent to try us, honestly!

I will keep you all updated as to the process as it unfolds.

The rest of the weekend was quiet, with school holidays kicking off so many people were away and busy, and we just chilled at home. I was on call again, but it wasn’t too bad, and I had one baby, a real cutiepie called Jody. I managed a short run on the road and had a good gym session. It is time to get strong and fit again, despite my ankle not being 100% happy yet. my brain needs all the help she can get right now. And I made a killer dessert yesterday, a white chocolate ice cream mouse with stroopwafels broken up inside that. Was divine!
